1)
Rob Malley, U.S. Special Rep on #Iran, has come heavy criticism for arguing: "Most of the region’s disfunctionings have root in Iran’s exclusion."

Don't be surprised. His remarks about Iran-backed terrorist groups, such as Hamas and Hezbollah, are quite telling.
2)
Reminder—#Iran provides for:

Assad—$15 bn/yr
Hezbollah—$700 mill/yr
Houthis—at least $360 mill/yr
Hamas—$360 mill/yr
Iraqi militias—$150 mill/yr

Sources:
fdd.org/analysis/2018/…

english.alarabiya.net/en/News/gulf/2…

timesofisrael.com/iran-agrees-to…

But this doesn't concern Malley apparently.
3)
Malley, while being a U.S. official, sounds more like the Iranian foreign minister or a strong Iranian apologist/lobbyist.

#Iran is the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism.

Still Malley says: "... what we have to do so that Iran enjoys the benefits of the deal...]"
